King Colt

Texans Nine Point Favorite Over The Colts

53 posts in this topic

That 9 point spread is going to draw alot of Vegas dollars. I would love to see a victory or an overtime necessary to beat the Colts. We know KC is next week before we have the Texans at home in the season finale so pour it on Colts this Sunday. Anyone see a trick play or two coming Sunday from our boys!?

I just see 1 sports book out of the 8 listed have it at 9. Most are 8 with one at 8.5. Seems to be pretty much the same spread as the NE game....

if we only lose by nine in houston, i will take that as a victory. i am really worried about Luck staying healthy with our bad OL. please, please, please add some screen passes and shorter throws to eliminate our QB from taking a pounding.

we need to win in KC the following week.

Go Colts!!

Yeah, when we lose, the spread isn't an issue. I agree, Luck's health is most important. Please, no empty backfield sets!

I don't know what the over/under is....

But a Colts loss of around 30-20 doesn't seem unreasonable to me.

Of course, stranger things have happened all year.... which is why I don't bet...!!

I'm not sure how the game will go on Sunday, but I have seen the Jaguars and the Lions go toe-to-toe against the Texans. Neither of those two teams, especially not the Jaguars, has a dominant O-line and their QBs didn't get killed.

I expect a good game overall, and a great effort by Luck. All the talk this week has been about our poor O-line play and the Texans dominant D-line. I hope that our boys come out with something to prove.

I'm not expecting a win, but the Colts absolutely could win this one. It would be a signature win for Luck and the Colts, and they're due for one. Here's hoping for an Andrew Luck coming-out party on Sunday!

I think that we're making too much about the runningback situation. Ballard will be able to go on Sunday and will carry the load, almost entirely. His back ups, especially Moore has a familiarity with our offense. We should be fine there.

Here's today's injury report:

Flash......with all due respect.....Ballard will play hurt....

Moore just got back..and neither is a great blocker...There's nothing we can do at this point

...for this week.

But we wont be fine...They are going to blitz Luck like he had $1,000 bills hanging from his belt

Why even play the game then? Just put a L on the schedule? Alot of fans on here said the Colts didnt match up well with the Lions, maybe they didnt. But last time I checked the Colts scored more points than the Lions. "Colts can`t do this and Colts can`t do that" . 9-4, somebody`s doing something right. The Texans could easily be 9-4 themselves! I`m not conceding anything to the Texans.They had better be prepared to play 60 minutes of football against the Colts because this team doen not quit, and neither will I as one of their fans. Ain`t skeered of no Texans

We try more long passes than probably any other team in the league. Holding the ball for your receiver to get open is too dangerous with our OL.

That's true and I completely agree. But there is a sliver of hope. The Lions and the Packers, two teams that have bad O-lines and vertical passing attackes did well against the Texans. The Packers beat them and the Lions almost beat them but got hosed by the refs. Neither team (Packers or Lions) has a particularly strong defense, but are potent on offense, like the Colts. I see some similarities and hope that we can play against the Texans like they did.

Ballard is a ok blocker but Moore is actually good at it.

What worries most is we are getting an angry Texans team that was humiliated on national TV. Quality teams have a way of punishing opponents in games following an embarrassment.

Analyze the reason the Texans were beat to a pulp by GB and NE and exploit those reasons. A game heavy in poassing could do the trick but Luck is 18 and 18 in TDs and ints. so that being said heck, throw it all to the wind, "if we are not victorious let no man come back alive".......a line from from the movie Patton. :)

7.5 points as of 10:30 AM cst. Texans talk radio is sounding very nervous about the high emotional levle of play. One of the two host just said, "I don't want to see Pagano on the side lines in week 17 at Lucas stadium". Yeah Baby!!!!!

Yes and some see what they want to see, nothing but negative. And it wasn`t a speech, just a thought.  I see a team that nobody gave a chance, just like this next game. But you know what? They are already winners - win, lose or draw. Yes the Colts could get blown out like they did in New England. But the "positive" side of that was they were also within 7 points at halftime and had a chance. The Eagles? The biggest bunch of under achievers in the league. Comparing to the Colts? Too funny

I think people are giving the Texans too much credit...

Peoples perceptions become so blurred once they label a team good or bad.

The Texans have not been blowing teams out lately...

Everyone acts as if the Texans are on whole other level.... they aren't!

Now the Patriots?

Yes!

I toatally agree with you.  I don't think it's going to be a blow out at all.  Every time a perceived Goliath comes knocking, the usual suspects come out all over this forum flapping their wings, spreading their chicken feathers of doubt and pessimism.  I don't understand it.  We've beaten the number 2 offense in the entire league, beaten a Super Bowl champion, behind by only 7 at half time to a team that is almost unanimously perceived as the eventual 2012 Super Bowl Champion before the game is even played.  For some reason it's easy for them to toss that out, but they can never seem to let go of anything we did not do well.  Things that happened during the first game of the season, things that happened in the 5th week of the season. 

 

When are people going to learn that you can't judge this team by stats and all the standard means of judging performance.  Like Reggie and so many others on the team have said "We just don't know any better".  I tend to always remain positive about this team because they are performing their works by remaining focused on a vision.  The saying is "Vision OVER Circumstance". A vision I believe that is protected by a higher power.  I don't want to get too religious here, but when you have that element you can achieve things that can't be explained by traditional performance metrics.

 

I have faith in our boys this Sunday.  You can give me every reason why they can't win until the cows come home, and I will remained focused on the vision.  You do what you do, and I'll do what I do!

most books opened at 8 or 8.5 and a couple have as high as 10 as of today. So it's a bigger move than this guy shows.

 Our Colts have many weaknesses but they also have some uncommon strengths, we may match-up well we may get blown out who knows? The Texans have to feel alot of uncertainty unlike pevious years, our offense is new to them so is our improved run D. When i think of the times the Texans thumped the Colts it has always stemmed from their run game rolling us, if we make Shaub have to win it we have a good shot, if Foster runs wild we have no chance imho.

several things have to happen

 

Limit turnovers (Thats the biggest actor NE beat us like they did)

Keep Luck off his butt

Dont quit on the run and turn this into a shootout (Arians likely will come the second half)

Dont over pursuit on the run especially the Texans stretch plays (know your assignment but watch the ball)

Secondary has to show up for a full 60 minutes

Im not worried but of defense. Our offense just needs to protect the ball. I think we have better shot versus texans than we did versus lions because the texans front seven is not as tough as lions front seven in my opinion. If you stop watt you can pass all day on secondary like brady and rodgers

Saunders needs to be put in to block. That will help free up Ballard / Moore for a swing or screen pass. Luck'll have to go deep early to stretch Houston's defense. I would like to see every deep ball (unless there's blown coverage) thrown out of bounds.

    • I've heard of Mike Francesca.. I've never heard his show.  Not one time.  Hes not on here in the Chicago area.
      I'm not knocking him..he must be good. I've just never heard him Howard Stern isn't on in Chicago. Most of the names you mention, I've never heard their shows. Russo used to be on with Don Imus when Imus was on TV...and that's where I know him from. Seems like a decent kid but he's strange   We didn't get Sporting News radio in Chicago except overnights. The NBC radio network was never on up here.  Daytime sports programming was and is pretty local in Chicago.... Mike North, Dan Jiggetts....Carmen and Jurko....Waddle and Silvy   With Sirius Radio..I know every body is on Nationally now... Ive heard a little of that (just got a newer car) and it sounds good..a channel for every sport. Interesting But its not free... so my interest is chilled by lack of cash    
    •   You have never heard of Mike Francesa? He has been on the radio since 1989 or so. His show comes on in most parts of the country on weekday afternoons. If you heard of "Mike and the Mad Dog", he is Mike.  He has had a national football show on the radio on Sundays during the NFL season for at least 20 years.   You mentioned Chet Coppack. There used to be a 24-hour sports radio station called Sporting News Radio. Do you know it? It may still be around but we no longer get it where I am. I believe it was based out of the Chicago area or somewhere in the Midwest. Chet Coppack used to have a show on Saturdays or Sundays. Other sports radio personalities that I remember were Jay Mariotti, Scott Wetzel, Nestor Aparicio, Tony Bruno, Papa Joe Chevalier (deceased), Bruce Murray, Rick Ballou, and others. I used to enjoy them because they talked national sports, not just local sports. 
    • Dont get me wrong, Dan Gilbert is a terrible owner. But, this is 99% LeBron's fault. Even If the cavs still had Griffin, there is nothing that Griffin can do to improve the team. They have no cap space to get big time free agents and they have no assets to trade, outside the big three. LeBron stood his ground and made sure his guys got paid. Tristan, JR, Shumpert, and Frye. Those contracts look as bad with the cap increase as they did before them. LeBron forced the team to trade any assets they had for the likes of Mozgov. Lebron got the good coach fired and had him replaced him with his buddy. Lebron gutted the team from the inside out and he's now doing his best to shift the blame of him.    Kyrie requested to be traded back when Butler was still with the bulls. Why leak the information weeks later? And the guy who leaked it, Windhorst, is well known to be LeBron's guy. Just more shifting of the blame
    • That's true..but a new GM can do the same. Look I understand why folks don't like Dan Gilbert. He never speaks. Never defends himself..and he bad mouthed LeBron on his way out of town.   But when you lay down the bucks the way he does, I think he can be demanding. I dont know what trades they can make in their financial situation... Irving wanting to be traded may be a blessing because it allows them to get finances back somewhere near seas level.   I dont know if you can count on the same guy who overpaid everybody to turn around and find value guys
    • Again, I don't like every move Griffin made, but he had some success and got them to win the title.  If nothing else, keeping Griffin means continuity, so you can perhaps get rid of some overpriced players and find guys who bring more value to your team.
